It was your eyes that gave you up through that stupid disguise
You tryin' to hide behind your drink and you almost slipped by
I see you there,sophisticated, ignoring the beat
Mouth might be closed, but listen baby, your heart, it is screaming

You're one of us
One of those beautiful fools, you are
You're one of us
You were born in this song, so you should live in it

Live in a drum, whoa
You'll never be in it alone
If you live in a drum, whoa
Right now, you'd already be home
Live on, live on
The drum life never gets old
Live on, live on
The drum life keeps going on

It was a lie when they told you you were stuck here forever
They're all alone, the music's begging to bring us together
You've been away and now you (now you) won't dance
It's the only way back to your homeland

You're one of us
One of those beautiful fools, you are
You're one of us
You were born in this song, so you should live in it

Live in a drum, whoa
You'll never be in it alone
If you live in a drum, whoa
Right now, you'd already be home
Live on, live on
The drum life never gets old
Live on, live on
The drum life keeps going on

I live my life on the inside of a drum,
I love it, love it, love it, love it.
Beautiful music when we play,
dont you wanna touch it, touch it, touch it, touch it...

and It's not hard living inside of a drum, it's nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing
Let's live our lives on the inside of a drum, and ay, ay, ay

You're one of us
One of those beautiful fools, you are
You're one of us
You were born in this song, so you should live in it

Live in a drum, whoa
You'll never be in it alone
If you live in a drum, whoa
Right now, you'd already be home
Live on, live on
The drum life never gets old
Live on, live on
The drum life keeps going on.

    My InterpretationThe song is about being true to yourself. Saying that unless you are who you are and not what others want you to be you wont be happy. Your the drummer of your own life story and only you can dance to that beat. your not ment to dance to someone else beat.
